CRG Hindsight Bar End Mirror
Gets the job done.
I needed something that would keep the bike legal. As far as bar end mirrors go this is great. Does everything I need it to do.

ATTENTION! You need to also purchase: CRG Billet Internal Adapter For CRG Bar End Mirror
I ordered these and they are lovely, well built, and all that but they do not include any way to mount the mirrors to your bar ends.
When I ordered these, I read through the product description and was happy to see that they came with the mounting hardware. The features specify that it comes with the "Optional billet internal adaptor for mounting on virtually any bar". I thought "great, all I need to order is this." They arrived today and to my surprise they did not come with the "Optional billet internal adaptor for mounting on virtually any bar". Strange I thought. What they must have meant was the "Optional billet internal adaptor for mounting on virtually any bar" was not a feature that came with the mirror, but was something you had to purchase completely independent of this item... as though it really isn't a feature at all.
So I thought I would use this space to list the other optional features RevZilla may want to include in the product description.
1. Optional 2015 Ducati Superbike 1299 Panigale S
2. Optional 2015 BMW R NINE T
3. Optional room and board for a lifetime
4. Optional 1 million United States Dollars! (Heck, let's make it a Billion)
5. Optional world domination
I think you get my point. Can it really be a feature if it isn't a part of what you're purchasing? Revzilla, please be specific in your descriptions. Now I have to pay extra shipping for mounting hardware that really should have come with the mirrors.

Cool cafe mirrors
These are really nice mirrors with solid construction and great fit and finish. They are a little pricy but so far seem worth it. Beware, however, that if you are installing them on a Thruxton like me, you will need bar end adapters. I was told on the phone by a Revzilla salesperson that I didn't need adapters. You definitely do. And make sure they are sized for the Thruxton stock bars because the adapters have specific bolt sizes that fit into the handlebar ends. I got the adapters from British Customs and they were another $20....each!

Better visibility than stock tall mirrors
These mirrors are fantastic! They were easy enough to install, look much better than the stock antenna-like mirrors, and more importantly, provide better visibility than OEM mirrors. They are a little pricey, but I don't mind considering everything else mentioned. I recommend this product.
I ride an FZ-09 and ended up buying new bar ends to mount these onto.

I was surprised with how durable this was. I went down on some dirt , thinking I had ruined the mirror. However, all it needed was a readjustment. I'm happy I got these instead of a cheap set

There is nothing more to say but phenomenon.
Here is what I have to say.
People have been saying good and bad things about this mirror. But who really know what it really capable of.
First of all, zero blind spot. Convex glass.
Secondly, your view stays whatever you do. Angle the bar or do a lean don't change your mirror view too much. Naturally, that what a convex glass is good for. Ground stays horizontally, and lanes keep looking the same. A huge change for anyone stuck on mirror-on-bar-thing.
Thirdly, its name "split lane" actually explain its limit. You can't determine anything further than 1 lane next to you properly, like, going between lanes (but it's good for 3, including the one you ride on)
Next, they advertise the coating. and they're right. Not much haze even the sun is behind me. So I can keep change-lane safely (no, mine is not CA, no split-lane).
So what the deal?
The mirror is fully modular. If you break any piece, get an replacement on that piece only. Never throw away your mirror because of a dented rim or the shaft breaks.
Contacting the manufacture is recommended.
Also, some people mention the wider handle bar. It happens be cause it's a bar-end mirror. Can't complain if you misread its name. (3 inches each side, if anyone curious).
So, in short.
(if you worry about the distortion and the indeterminable view then 8/10)
Durability? 100000/10 or what makes you happy. This thing is fixable.
Ease of install? 10/10
So, don't be fool. This a steal. I never go back to normal mirror.
